I believe this is an excellent textbook for methods at the Master’s level. The sample of methods and approaches is very good. In addition to treating the “ordinary” techniques like linear and logistic regression, the book also deals with multilevel analysis, panel data analysis, factor analysis, and structural equation model. This covers the quantitative methods that are relevant for today’s Master’s students.
